Our students recently participated in the first ever “chalk-a-lot” experience at University Schools. Â This past fall, the City of Greeley hosted an event called, “Chalk-a-lot” on the campus of University of Northern Colorado. Â The goal of the event was to create something wonderful as a community, as well as trying to set a new record for theÂ Guinness World Records.
Although our students were not chalking parking lots at UNC, elementary students did use a lot of chalk on the playground. Â Our class voted on our favorite read aloud book and no one was surprised that How to Steal a Dog was our class favorite. Â This is a book on overcoming poverty as a young girl named Georgina is living in her car with her brother and mother. Â She plans to steal a dog to earn reward money to help herÂ family.
While our book cover came together it was amazing to witness the teamwork and spirit of unity. Â During the University Schools “Chalk-a-lot” our 4th grade students came together as a team and created something wonderful.
